The Portland Human Rights Commission monthly meeting is held on the first Wednesday of the month at 4:00 PM - 11/4/15
This meeting due to the large attendance from the public, has held in the Portland Building this month. This meeting mostly consisted of discussion (including many community comments) on the recent vote by the HRC's endorsement of letter to the Socially Responsible Investments Committee (for Portland).
This signed letter encouraged the city to not invest in 4 international companies that were violating Human Rights in the Gaza area.
Two HRC members rescinded their votes for the letter in this November public meeting.
